•The Jacobite legend has an enduring fascination and now global interest due to the Outlander books and TV series - this book covers the relationship between Scotland, Culloden, Highlanders and the Stuart Dynasty •The exhibition with which the book is associated will get wide coverage •The specially commissioned essays by experts in their field will challenge many misconceptions about this period of history •The objects and paintings in the exhibition, of which around 200 are showcased in the book, are from national collections in UK and France. They are shown together here for the first time. Several were the personal property of Bonnie Prince Charlie Enormous political upheaval ravaged the British Isles in the eighteenth century. The conflict originated from an ongoing disagreement: the Scots and the Irish were fighting Protestant England to restore to their countries the Catholic line of Stuart kings. These were the Jacobite Rebellions (the name stems from the Latin form of 'James', last of the Stuart Kings). This publication tells the compelling story of love, loss, exile, rebellion and retribution that underpinned this turbulent period in European history. In the summer of 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie, grandson of James VII and II, landed in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. He would be the Jacobite Stuarts' last hope in the fight to regain the three kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland. His defeat led to many subsequent migrations to America by those seeking religious and economic freedom. Today, the Scots-Irish and Gaelic American population who boast such ancestry may be as high as 15 percent. This book has been produced for the major new exhibition: Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites at the National Museum of Scotland 23 June-12 November 2017.
